The Social World of Content Abusers in Community Question Answering

Imrul Kayes, Nicolas Kourtellis, Daniele Quercia, Adriana Iamnitchi, Francesco Bonchi
2015 Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '15  
The usefulness of such platforms depends heavily on user contributions (questions and answers), but also on respecting the community rules.  ...  As a crowd-sourced service, such platforms rely on their users for monitoring and flagging content that violates community rules. Common wisdom is to eliminate the users who receive many flags.  ...  Social features are based on the social network of the users, where Activity features are based on community contributions in the form of questions and answers.  ...

2016 Social Science Research Network  
However, it is crucially important for managers to develop appropriate policies to gather necessary answers to questions asked on the platform in order to capitalize on such system.  ...  We find that question elements negatively affect sales while answer elements have a positive impact. Also, an increase in the number of question is positively correlated with the number of reviews.  ...  One question can be answered by more than one users and participants can ask and answer questions without purchasing the product.  ...

Supporting synchronous social q&a throughout the question lifecycle

Matthew Richardson, Ryen W. White

Next, based on the characteristics of HQA services, several novel non-textual features are proposed, including surface linguistic features and social features.  ...  In an HQA service, answers are normally short texts, which are severely affected by the data sparsity problem. Furthermore, HQA services lack community features such as best answer and user votes.  ...  Non-textual features In CQA, the majority of the necessary work on how to leverage non-textual features for user answer quality prediction has been completed.  ...
